We can totally blame you for neglecting to do your civic duty.  It doesn't
matter if you never asked for it; just by being an adult citizen of the

possible to shirk the duty) or to renounce your citizenship (which usually
requires leaving the country).

Certain people not voting was part of how Trump got into office.
